About Bivik Shah:

Dr. Bivik Shah started the Columbus Institute of Plastic Surgery, serving Columbus and Dayton, Ohio, because he wanted to create an environment in a private practice setting that left every patient satisfied and comfortable. He strives to make his patients feel cared for and important as they attempt to meet each and every medical and personal need. 

Dr. Shah grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio. He earned an electrical engineering degree from the University of Michigan before returning to Ohio to attend medical school at Ohio State University. Dr. Shah later joined the faculty of Ohio State University, where he was responsible for performing surgery on some of the city's most complicated burn and reconstruction cases.

Dr. Shah is actively involved in Operation Smile, which provides voluntary care to children around the world and in the United States who are born with facial deformities. Dr. Shah has been on four separate Operation Smile missions, visiting Thailand, India, Honduras, and Bolivia to provide care to children born with cleft lip and cleft palate deformities. During the Operation Smile missions, which last for one or two weeks, Dr. Shah, and fellow volunteers operate for charity on about 100-150 children, providing them with new smiles and a renewed hope for the future.

Dr. Shah is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the American Burn Association, the Ohio State Medical Association, and the Columbus Medical Association.

Tummy Tuck

Very friendly staff.

Laser Hair Removal

I love the staff there! Not having to shave as often

Breast Augmentation

Overall experience was amazing and the outcome was perfect!..Very friendly atmosphere! The outcome was perfect!

Body Lift

The doctor was very attentive and listened to everything I said. He gave me realistic expectations and provided outstanding service My clothes fit better. I now buy the right size instead of large to hide my “rolls”. I am now more confident and willing to participate in activities with the grandchildren, even went wall climbing

Tummy Tuck

Loved the office staff and doctor. Made me feel very comfortable. They cared about me

Breast Implant Revision

More self confidence, more comfortable with my body. I knew what to expect, before and after and I love the surgery results!

Breast Reduction

The results!! As someone who never had surgery prior to my breast reduction, liposuction and breast lift, I can't say anything bad about the experience. I wasn't in pain because Dr. Shaw told me exactly how to proceed with medication, cleaning and due diligence in order to heal correctly. I appreciate the time and effort and care I had with my procedure as well.

Breast Augmentation

Everyone was very positive and excited for me. Helped the process greatly I have a positive attitude

Breast Implant Removal

The staff at CIPS are always polite and respectful. They always treat you like the number one patient, regardless of what you are having done and why you are there. The office offers plenty of small touches that add up to a fantastic experience. Things that I do not see offered at other plastic surgery offices. Always a delight to visit CIPS I am able to run long distances and improve my running time. While I loved my implants, they no longer fit my lifestyle. I am so glad I was able to get them and have them removed in such a wonderful atmosphere.

Tummy Tuck

My surgeon, as well as all of the staff, were very pleasant, understanding and made me feel comfortable. Also, they were very fast and efficient, I had no wait time, I was in and out very quickly and effectively. They made the entire experience as easy and simple as it could've possibly been. I will definitely return for any future procedures. My everyday life is simple and delightful ever since my procedure. I look in the mirror everyday and smile, because I know that I am happy and deeply satisfied with myself and now my body as well. All of my clothes fit perfectly now, I no longer feel self conscious and I am completely in love with my body. No more trying on 10 outfits and still not loving the way I look. I can even wear belly shirts and bikinis and feel beautiful! I am beyond happy with my decision, and I am so thankful to myself for making this decision for me and only me, and of course to my surgeon for doing such an amazing job!

Breast Augmentation

I had breast augmentation performed by Dr. Shah after researching this and surgeons for years. I feel more confident within my body and more feminine. I wish I had done it years ago. Dr. Shah and his staff were very supportive and thorough. The whole experience was beyond what I was expecting. I would recommend Dr. Shah to everyone.


Staff is friendly, knowledgeable and extremely caring. Nursing staff just as caring ! I am beyond satisfied with my entire experience and my legs look AMAZING! Confident, happy and relieved- thank you

Breast Implant Removal

Everything went smoothly. From pre-op appt till my last post-op appt. I chose Dr. Shah because he seemed to be genuinely concerned about my anxiety about my procedure. Made me feel a lot better and told me it would be easy and calmed me down. I trusted him and I would trust him again should I ever decide to have any other surgical procedures. All his staff were sooooo nice. His surgical team was great! I would recommend going to see him for any procedure. I’m very happy! Also, I had 3 other consultations, and his cost was very reasonable in comparison.
